Welfare is forced kindness and a form of legislated morality. It is inconsistent with liberty.

HandsOff

The question of whether one should give up his property to another is a decision that should be left entirely up to the rightful owner of said property. For example, it is a nice gesture to give to charity, take out the trash for your elderly neighbor, or to just be kind in general, but it is typically a matter of free will as to whether an individual chooses to partake in these acts of kindness. If these once-voluntary deeds were suddenly forced upon us by our government, I think most would con...

I thank my opponent in advance for accepting this debate. In my opinion, cricket is better than baseball as far as sports go.

With baseball bats, all anyone can do is hit it straight on, and that is not fun. 2) Bowling is better than pitching. Though there are plenty of different pitches (i.e. curveball, sinker, etc), there is not much else you can do t...

Hello. My name is Keenan Harris. Before I start my debate I would like to thank my opponent for taking time out of his/her day to debate me, and I would like to thank the judges for taking time out of their day to read this debate and make intelligent decisions on who should, or should not be, the winner. It is because of you that Debate.org functions. Now onto my debate. Skateboarding should be banned. After you think about it, this statement couldn't seem any more true. As we all know, Urba...

Should there be Football at Mount Saint Charles

perroMSC2014
superman1226

I believe we need football at Mount Saint Charles for the better of mankind! Mount does not have a football team which is un-american. What high school in United States doesn't have a football team. We need one because football is awesome, it's a great sport, and students would be honored to play....

Will Duke win March Madness

papasmurf420

Okay so this is a longshot but I've chosen Duke to be the winner for the last five years and they never win so I figured that if I didn't pick them this year and this happened to be the year they win then I could never forgive myself. Does anyone have any thoughts on Duke's chance this year?...
